Iím back from a few days in Berlin with J & J. Much walking, beer drinking, riding on trains, marveling at the clean and safe streets, etc. I will post a few pictures soon.
Recently read Atonement. The first 80 pages crawl by but once you hit the end of the first section itís incredibly gripping. Itís amazing how he can throw clever post-modern tricks into a mainstream page-turner.
Iím currently reading Valerie Martinís Property. Sheís a fantastic writer and person so I canít recommend it enough.
Soon, Iíll be loading up on Russian lit in preparation for my trip to St. Petersburg in June.
We saw Phone Booth and the premise amazes and vexes me: a creep decides to punish a man for lying by shooting at him. Whatís amazing to me is that the lying stems from his career in public relations. Couldnít they have found a lying oil executive, or politician or mob hit man or crooked stock broker or thief? Are we really that bad?
